Reducing pollution means using alternative, renewable, and environmentally friendly energy sources whenever possible, recycling all appropriate materials that can be reused, and conserving energy and taking steps to keep the air clean. Energy conservation can be a small step that adds up to large energy savings. Turn off the lights whenever you leave a room and do not leave the water running when you are washing dishes or brushing your teeth. Do not use aerosol sprays because these can contain ingredients that can be harmful to the ozone layer and the air quality. The next time you buy an appliance, choose one that is energy efficient and is rated as such because this can save energy and reduce both costs and pollution.
Pollution reduction is important in the world today because many big cities and even smaller towns in many places are seeing the effects of pollution. Smog is common in Los Angeles, even on good days. This is why cars in the state must pass emissions tests before being allowed to drive legally on California roads. New York City and areas around it also have problems with pollution, often which is visible. There are many ways you can help reduce pollution and make the earth a better place for generations to come.
When you are buying a car, choose a hybrid type or a car that does not use fossil fuels at all. Using cleaner fuels like biodiesel and ethanol, or taking advantage of electric cars becoming available can reduce your personal emissions significantly. Another step is to drive as little as possible. Walk or ride a bicycle the rest of the time. If you live close enough to your job, try riding your bike to work. If this is not possible, try carpooling. Taking one car every day instead of four can cut the total emissions released by three-fourths, which is a lot less pollution.
Recycling is an important step in reducing pollution because it saves new resources from being harvested and used. Recycling paper products like newspapers, cardboard, and other paper products could save thousands of trees each and every year. Recycling saves energy too so that there is less pollution during the production process and only around one-fourth of the energy needed to create the product from recycled versus new materials. Reducing pollution means recycling and conserving as much energy as possible because energy usually means pollution in some form unless it is from a renewable alternative energy source like solar, biomass, or wind power.
Reducing pollution can be done by switching to alternative and renewable energy sources like biofuels instead of relying on non-renewable fossil fuels that are only helping pollute our planet. Biofuels and other alternative energy sources are cleaner and more environmentally friendly, but until these technologies are widely used, conserving energy should be practiced in order to minimize pollution and your impact on the earth.
